An ideal base for walkers wanting a short break. Any longer than a few days ideally needs a car though we managed to get further afield with lifts from friendly tourists and the daily bus to Funchal. The hotel is in good order. Being in the mountains means the climate is cooler and wetter that the south coast and the hotel public areas were not heated during our stay (feb). Having said that the staff were lovely and very helpful. There is internet access (not wifi) which is not expensive. The half board option is very good value and maybe buffet or a la carte depending on the number of residents. Again, a car would be needed to eat at other establishments. Evenings are quiet but games are available on request. The nearby walks included Levada and mountain walks requiring a degree of fitness and/or nerve. The mountain views from the bedroom was magical!
